Community book read planned

The Plymouth Public Library, in conjunction with the Plymouth Joint School District’s Community Education, will sponsor a community book read as part of their centennial celebration.

Since 1998, communities all over the United States have increasingly embraced the notion of civic unity through the reading of literature. For “ONE Book ONE Community - The Plymouth Chapter,” people are encouraged to read “Go Set A Watchman,” the recently released first novel written by Harper Lee. The author is best known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “To Kill A Mockingbird,” and one of the planned discussions will compare the two works.

Beginning Oct. 13, there will be book discussions led by Jim Beaver, Herb Stoltenberg and Brad Feick, former and current English teachers at Plymouth High School. Other subject matter experts in such fields as history, sociology and feminism have also agreed to lead discussions in various Plymouth locations with a variety of times and dates to accommodate schedules.

You are welcome to attend as many as you would like. Check the website, for complete details.

Copies of the book are available for loan from several locations including the Plymouth Public Library or may be purchased at Book Heads on Mill Street.
